(Wo)man Bites Dog
It's a journalistic cliche as old as journalism itself: if dog bites a man, it's not news. But if a man bites a dog, well...it's FOX news, at the very least. In this case a 38-year-old Minnesota woman bit a Pit Bull on the nose after it jumped a fence, landed in her yard and started attacking her Labrador Retriever. As the owner of a 2 year old Lab (yes, that's her above), I can't say I wouldn't have tried everything possible to save my dog, but putting your face that close to the locking jaws of an angry Pit....that's devotion.
The Lab is recovering and the Pit is being tested (for rabies, etc.). No word on the attacking dog's fate, but I for one hope they don't have to destroy him. In terms of media analysis, at least the piece didn't stoop to use the phrase "dog eat dog."
